Black Ice Possible This Evening

Roadways and walkways are currently wet because snow showers fell this afternoon and melted after contact. Per the National Weather Service, as temperatures drop this evening, untreated surfaces are likely to freeze into black ice (a transparent coating of ice). This will lead to dangerous travel conditions.
What black ice forms, what looks like wet pavement may actually be icy. Residents should drive slowly, allow extra travel time, and brake very slowly. Pedestrians should use extreme caution while walking.
